Bing Maps Services

Published on Monday, September 12, 2011

We can use Bing Map Services directly to implement our Bing Map project.

Firstly you should have a Bing Map develop account which is free to register.

The starter page is here, you can learn lots of methods which Microsoft provided.

For example: If you want to put a static Bing map on your site, you might choose a map image, but you can directly load a URL style service to get the image on the web page.

For example, if you copy the following link to your web browser directly, and replace the “yourBingMapDevString” using your real Bing map developer key;

http://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Imagery/Map/AerialWithLabels/m4l1s1?mapSize=800,600&&key=yourBingMapDevString

You will get a map image which the center is the location which post code is M4L1S1:
